The Queen Steps Out for First Solo Royal Duties in Scotland

The Queen stepped out for the first solo outing of her four-day visit to Scotland on Tuesday.

The monarch, 95, held an audience with the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Earlier in the day, the Queen's grandson, the Duke of Cambridge, carried out a solo engagement in Glasgow, visiting the BAE Systems shipyard to see HMS Glasgow in construction.

In Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling, Her Majesty will visit businesses, charities and cultural institutions that highlight the pioneering work taking place to further community engagement, education, technology, and efforts to combat climate change.

She is staying at her official residence, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, in Edinburgh during Royal Week, also known as Holyrood Week.

The Duke of Cambridge visited BAE Systems yard in Govan, Glasgow to meet the team building HMS Glasgow on the banks of the River Clyde.

During a speech, he announced that the Queen has approved the appointment of the Duchess of Cambridge as Sponsor of HMS Glasgow, which is the first of the City Class Type 26 Global Combat Ships to be built for the Royal Navy. At the end of his visit, the Duke was presented with models of the ship for his children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, to paint.

Her Majesty was named Colonel-in-Chief of The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders on her 21st birthday by her father, King George VI, and remained so until 2006 when they became part of The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
